Turkey Chili With Beans & Flavorful Herbs & Spices
You can make this chili in quantity and freeze for later use. Storing in smaller freezer bags or tubs would allow you to prep your lunch, snack, dinner in a matter of minutes. Plus, cooking this recipe initially takes about 30 minutes. Pressure cooker is my go-to helper when I need flavor, protein, and happy tummies around the table! Happy Chili-ing!

The 8 Spices That Make the Flavor
Celebrate with Chips, Taco Shells & Plain Spoons!
I love adding beans to my chili. I use pinto, white beans, kidney beans, black beans – any bean is a great addition to any meal, especially when it comes to chili. Beans are full of fiber and micronutrients like lignans that benefit heart health, osteoporosis and some types of cancers. Having protein on its own won’t be truly helpful. You need fiber to move that stuff through your systems and eliminate the toxins that appear as by-products during its digestion. Celebrate the beans of all kinds in your food choices to literally support your different systems within the body.
